With streaming services galore and DVDs becoming a thing of the past, it’s important to make the right decision when adding to your collection.
Each month, we look at what movies deserve a space on your home-cinema shrine… (commonly known as a DVD shelf).
Here’s five films that we think have potential to be bought in a shop near you…
STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER
Director: J.J. Abrams
Writers: Chris Terrio (screenplay by), J.J. Abrams (screenplay by)
Stars: Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver
The surviving members of the resistance face the First Order once again, and the legendary conflict between the Jedi and the Sith reaches its peak bringing the Skywalker saga to its end.
It’s the final movie in the trilogy, and perhaps ever? Who knows! But if you own the other eight, I really don’t need to sell this to you.
JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL
Director: Jake Kasdan
Writers: Jake Kasdan, Jeff Pinkner
Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart
In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to rescue one of their own, the players will have to brave parts unknown from arid deserts to snowy mountains, to escape the world's most dangerous game.
This revitalised version of the Jumanji saga is a hoot, and the sequel isn’t that bad either. Definitely worth a weekend viewing.
LE MANS ‘66
Director: James Mangold
Writers: Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth
Stars: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal
American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference and the laws of physics to build a revolutionary race car for Ford in order to defeat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.
A severely underrated movie from the recent Oscars awards season. It deserved more love, but at least it’s getting a little here.
Director: Guy Ritchie
Writers: Guy Ritchie (story), Ivan Atkinson (story)
Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Michelle Dockery
An American expat tries to sell off his highly profitable marijuana empire in London, triggering plots, schemes, bribery and blackmail in an attempt to steal his domain out from under him.
Guy Ritchie. Matthew McConaughey. Charlie Hunnam. Hugh Grant. Surely, we don’t need to go on? This is a great Friday night watch.
Director: Edward Norton
Writers: Jonathan Lethem (based on the novel by), Edward Norton (screenplay)
Stars: Edward Norton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alec Baldwin
In 1950s New York, a lonely private detective afflicted with Tourette's Syndrome ventures to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend.
This movie took Edward Norton years to get made, so we think purchasing this unrecognised drama is the least we can do. Give it a go.
